Black Friday Break from D&A.... 4 Contenders, Zenith and Score R&T sets
I took advantage of the deal at Dave and Adams Card World and bought 4 of the Contenders combos. Each combo gave you a box of Contenders, a blaster of Zenith and a Score Rookie and Traded set for $59.99. Good deal even though I did get dinged at the door for an extra $40 on delivery.
2 of the R&T sets and 2 of the Zenith Blasters went into the closet for stocking stuffers.... the rest I opened :)
I'll just list the biggest hits of the boxes, but I haven't had the chance to scan anything yet.
2 Score R&T set Autos
Zenith: 2 blasters
Brodie Dupont rc /999
Tavares Ice card? (Blue dufex kinda card) 17/25
Fleischmann winter warriors jersey
Regin winter warriors jersey
4 Contenders boxes
Lidstrom (shiny refractor looking thing) 08/100
Loui Eriksson 72/100
Maxime Macenauer black calder contenders 36/100
Lehner NHL Ink
Faulk NHL Ink
Cam Ward NHL Ink
Palushaj NHL Ink
Allan York rc auto /800
Ben Scrivens rc auto /800
Colin Greening rc auto /800
Tim Erixon rc auto /800
Brett Connolly rc auto /800
Simon Despres rc auto /800
Zack Kassian rc auto /800
Cody Hodgson rc auto /800
Doughty/Johnson dual NHL Ink redemption (redeemed)
Contenders Matchup booklet quad auto redemption (redeemed)
Datsyuk / Toews / Sharp / Howard
I think I did pretty good based on cost.
A total of 14 autos in the 4 contenders boxes so its a little better than the stated odds, but no patches at all so a bit disappionting. The zenith was just meh, but then again they are only blasters so what can you expect really?
I love the McDonagh auto from Score, and I'm excited to see whats in the other blasters and Score sets now.

The Zenith Tavares is the White Hot Parallel. List it wisely on ebay if you are selling it (Not at a 99 cent auction) because I haven't seen one before; Contenders /100 are the gold parallels.
Also, what's with everyone being disappointed by no patches but hitting booklets? I was hoping for a book in my box but hit a patch lol... You did really well. The Doughty/Johnson is an SP /75 as well as the booklet. Let's put it this way, last book went for $140, and yours is only the second or third one I have heard about being pulled.

Very nice breaks! Congrats on the booklet, and it's great to see that you got a nice Tavares from Zenith and a decent rookie auto from Score.

Thanks for the info on the inserts, they don't list them on packs anymore so I never know what they are unless I get in deep into a product.
I love the booklet concept (not the sticker autos), but I guess I just like getting them in hand when I open the packs more. I'm sure my view will change drastically once its in hand.
